Remember Them? #26

I thought it would be nice to relive some of the tunes that I for some time had forgotten about but at times in my life meant something to me, they will mainly be the songs and bands that anyone under the age of thirty (Ok forty… who am I kidding!) may never have heard of, if you’re a little older you may just have some memories of your own in amongst the music to follow, there’ll be some rubbish in here but I can promise there’ll be some gems too.

Free, English rock band 1968-73, fame eluded them until 1970 with the release of Fire and Water, then in a short time they became the best selling British rock/blues band, selling over 20 million albums. The band split and the individual members went on to spawn many well known bands, Bad Company being just one of them.

Although I was very young (very!) when they were touring the music stayed around long enough for it to be a part of the soundtrack of my youth.

Sit back and enjoy 🙂

The End is Nigh…

Book 3 (Yes the title is almost decided on and I will reveal it as soon as I’m sure) is done and off to the proof reader. The blurb is almost done too, just a few word changes here and there to do.  So now I have to work on the cover, graphics are always the most difficult part for me, my technical abilities leave much to be desired but I’m on the home straight.

So I’m planning a lazy weekend doing nothing more than breaking out a new notebook for the onset of the next book. Something completely different. I won’t write a word for a while but the notebook will sit there looking at me, willing me to fill its pages and get back to the writing desk.

I hope you all get the chance to relax a little this weekend, I’ll be cracking a bottle of Asti to celebrate finally having a title.

Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend everyone.

What To Do?

It’s a bit of a nothing day today, I don’t know what to do with myself.

Weathers dull, editings done, so what do I do with myself apart from drink vast quantities of coffee?

Don’t get me wrong theres a million things that need doing but there’s nothing that’s inspiring me today. So any ideas please pop them on a postcard and send them to me.

Meanwhile I’ll be scanning the internet trying to find something to write about to inspire you all to do better than me today.

Normal service will be resumed tomorrow I’m sure. 😉

not today

Alternatively, you could cheer me up and read my books 😉 (Well I couldn’t waste that opportunity could I 😉 )

Remember Them #25

I thought it would be nice to relive some of the tunes that I for some time had forgotten about but at times in my life meant something to me, they will mainly be the songs and bands that anyone under the age of thirty (Ok forty… who am I kidding!) may never have heard of, if you’re a little older you may just have some memories of your own in amongst the music to follow, there’ll be some rubbish in here but I can promise there’ll be some gems too.

Lynyrd Skynyrd American southern rock band. Formed in 1964 they found their popularity in the 70’s. Unfortunately a plane crash in 1977 killed two band members and a backup singer, although they went on to record and have some success there was a feeling that something was missing from then on. There have been many new members that have come and gone over the years but they are still mainly remembered for ‘Freebird’ & ‘Sweet Home Alabama’

For me personally, they bring back sweet memories of rock nights in the ‘Golden Eagle’ now sadly long gone into history.

Next Career Move…

For my birthday I got an unexpected gift… It’s going to lead me into my next career move. Now some may consider this to bit a bit of a leap from business owner and author but bear with me. I love puzzles, the coded type, give me a bunch of numbers and I’m as happy as a pig in mud. So ….

Drum roll please….

I’m going to be a spy… yes that right I’ve decided after receiving this gift…

GCHQ puzzles

That this is the way forward for me. International woman of mystery.

Now after you’ve stopped laughing and picked yourself up off the floor I’ll tell you all about it…

Oh wait… I can’t. If I tell you I’m going to have to kill you.

Hmmm… I may have to rethink the spying lark. 😉

A Birthday Present.

It’s my birthday so I decided to give you all a present from me. Free on Kindle, click the link that will take you to either the US site or UK site.

I hope you enjoy it and get a chance to relax with me on the 17th July.

A New Life.

She sat alone in her room, she wasn’t sad, she’d already been through that emotion, no, now she saw this as the next phase of her life. She had thought that she loved Cam but it turned out that he hadn’t felt the same about her and he left for a waitress at the local bistro. She was okay about that, she thought that now she was alone again she would do things differently and no longer depend on someone else for her happiness.

She grabbed her mobile and deleted everyone’s numbers and then went through her social media sites and deleted all of those too. She was going to live now and no one was going to stop her. She had decided that if someone phoned her she would keep them in her life but if people didn’t call then they were as good as dead to her. A new life beckoned. She felt free for the first time in years.

A couple of days went by, the first day she missed social media but didn’t give in. Two of her friends had phoned her today, she was pleased because they were the only two people in her life that she would have dearly missed. Now she was ready for an adventure and she hoped her two friends would go along with her. She booked three tickets for a week away in a log cabin and sent a ticket to each of her friends inviting them along.

The day came and she packed her bags, this was the start of her new life, she left the key in the door of her flat and took herself off to the cabin in the woods, she hoped her friends could make it because after this week she planned to go further afield and see what the world held for her.

They all got together, the week was full of laughter and love and was a good springboard into an unknown future, a future that her friends shared with her and showed her that there was more to life than a conventional love affair and a conventional life. She sent Cam a postcard from Bali, Singapore, India, Madagascar and smiled when her phone rang… he was just too late.
